Senate leaders demanded they be returned the power of committee assignments from Lt. Governor Casey Cagle. Within days of executing their new found toy power, they have been put in the uncomfortable position of having to determine if the Chairman of Banking should continue in light of his pending suit by the FDIC on charges of breach of fiduciary duty and neglect. Jim Galloway brings us a quote obtained by his AJC colleague Chris Quin from Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers:
“The Committee on Assignment’s work is done for the most part and already complete. I don’t know that there is going to be a lot more action by the committee.”
It sounds like the dog has caught the car he’s been chasing. Somewhere, Casey Cagle is laughing hysterically.
